Many people in our communities are just waiting to be invited to be part of what is going on at your church. Invitation is such a simple thing to do. “Hey mate, I’m going to … would you like to come?”
We recently heard about a lady who had waited 7 years for someone to invite her. She had moved here to New Zealand from Brazil. She had attended church in Brazil and had tried a few here in New Zealand when she first arrived but found it difficult to fit in. Life went on and she moved and stopped attending anywhere. She decided that she would wait for someone to invite her.
She had a new child. They started attending mainly music at a local presbyterian church. We, at Alpha NZ, had recently been talking to the Church Leader about invitation. He encouraged his mainly music team to invite the participants to come to church on Sunday. They did! She came! The 7 year wait was over!
